. then there are these north korean threats coming from the regime of kim jong un to launch the nuclear preemptive strikes as north korean officials call them. frankly, megyn, nobody is taking those very seriously. frankly, while north korea does have a long range missile that could possibly reach hawaii or even alaska, it does not yet have the technology to put a nuclear warhead on that missile. that's not to say the threats are being dismissed entirely because obviously there are other ways of attacking the united states. but the video you just showed, the missile launches they have done, the nuclear tests they've carried out, all are not meaningful right now because they're moving towards a nuclear weapon that can reach the u.s. they do not have it. most experts will tell you, they are at least two years away from achieving that technology, megyn. >> megyn: all right. jonathan, thank you. well, new questions today about whether what some are calling the president's 2014 mid term election strategy may have just back fired. today we'll look at the media pushback on the exaggerations over these budget cha
